New iTeen365 White Paper Identifies Dangerous Driving Distractions – Offers Solutions for Parents of Teen Drivers
Date:6/29/2012

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 29, 2012

According to Virginia Tech Transportation Institute Research “those who send text messages while driving are 23 times more likely to be in a crash.” The Pew Internet & American Life Project reports that teens, on average, text five times more a day than a typical adult. With more than 10 million teen drivers on the road, there has never been a better time than now to educate teens on the dangers of texting while driving. iTeen365, the latest and most advanced GPS-based teen vehicle monitoring system dedicated to saving teen lives and bringing them home safely, today issued a new white paper, “The Truth Behind Your Teen Texting and Driving.”

“It’s important that teen’s understand that no message is so urgent that it is worth diverting attention from the road and risking their lives and the lives of others who are on the road in the process,” said Joe McBreen, President and CEO of iTrack365, makers of iTeen365. “Our goal has always been to empower teens to be responsible drivers and we hope that by educating teens and their parents on the dangers of texting and driving, we are meeting that goal.”

The new white paper examines the various types of distractions that can occur while driving and points out some very sobering statistics when it comes to texting and driving. With texting as a teen’s number one mode of communication, it’s paramount that there be a shift in thinking when it comes time for them to operate a vehicle. The paper offers recommendations for how parents of teen drivers can address the hazards of texting behind the wheel and includes facts and figures from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, Corporate Claims Management, and Distraction.gov – the official US Government Website for Distracted Driving - to support their message.

Texting is a prevalent and constant danger for anyone on the road. With teen’s softened attitudes toward the danger of it, it’s crucial that parents not only take the time to educate themselves about the risks, but that they too abstain from texting. Being a positive role model can have a powerful impact on how a teen perceives the dangers of texting and will hopefully encourage them to pass the wisdom on to their peers.
